Course Summary

Why Choose this Online Training Course?

Mechanical equipment and systems in handle a variety of hazardous or even lethal substances that may also be corrosive. Many operate at high temperatures and pressures and are subjected to service conditions that could cause degradation and damage to the equipment, and if such damage is not detected and assessed in a timely manner, it could result in catastrophic failures with potentially enormous consequential losses of life and assets.

The potential degradation mechanisms, such as fracture, corrosion, erosion, fatigue, creep etc., that the equipment is likely to be subjected to in service must be taken into consideration in the design of the equipment. This is typically accounted for in the design through the selection of appropriate materials of construction, providing corrosion allowances in the form of additional thickness, providing control measures and incorporating safeguards and engineering controls to prevent operation outside the design envelope, and maintain the integrity of the equipment. In certain instances, total replacement of the equipment or system/circuit may be required.

Consequently, it is essential to inspect the mechanical equipment and systems with the view to detect any damage, characterize it, and assess its impact on the equipment integrity, in addition to Fitness-for-Service assessments.

A key objective of this comprehensive course is to provide the participants with a clear understanding of Materials Selection and the degradation mechanisms that mechanical equipment could be subjected to over their operating life, how to identify them, predict and determine their impact, and what appropriate measures can be taken to prevent and control the resultant damage.

This Coventry Academy online training course will include possible actions necessary for retaining a system, or restoring to it, a serviceable condition, include servicing, repair, modification, overhaul, inspection and condition verification. This increases the availability of the system and help to keep system’s equipment in working order.

This online training course will feature:

  • Study of mechanical faults related to mechanical equipment
  • Failure modes including fracture, fatigue, high temperature creep and corrosion damage
  • Materials types and selection
  • Condition monitoring and trending
  • Knowledge of non-destructive testing
  • Fault Fining and Maintenance Techniques
